At the 2019 ABC in Malmo (Sweden) the following motion was approved by Delegates regarding the safety card (see also https://acawso.org/2019/05/04/2019-aca-annual-business-conference-summary/)

That the Addressing Predatory Behavior working group convene at least two open discussion sessions, available to all volunteers, and revise proposed literature about victimizing behavior inside and outside ACA meetings. Following WSO board approval, the revised literature will be made available to the fellowship by September 2019, so that groups can test it and provide feedback to WSO. The working group and Literature Committee will incorporate fellowship suggestions as needed, and bring a final document back to the 2020 ABC for Conference Approval.
